Delhi student leader attempts suicide after principal’s threatsJanuary 30th, 2009 - 10:52 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Jan 30 (IANS) A student leader of the prestigious Ramjas College in Delhi Friday attempted suicide, alleging the college principal had threatened to spoil his career. Abishek Pandey, vice-president of students’ union, allegedly cut his right wrist open around 2 a.m. His roommate, who saw him bleeding, took him to a nearby private hospital.
Pandey, 19, was discharged after primary treatment.
“I was depressed by the principal, Rajender Prasad’s remarks. He threatened me in front of everyone he would spoil my life and career,” Pandey, a final-year student at the college, told IANS.
“It all started because I charged him with playing the card of regional politics among students,” he said.
The college principal was not available for comments.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (north Delhi) Sagar Preet Hooda said no case has been registered against anyone and the matter was not being probed.
